(ZP, im lieu B.A.)
Part nerd, part explorer, part critical observer, I’m passionate about every aspect and application of digital technology and the endless possibilities it could and hopefully will bring about for the benefit of humanity. I consider myself having been a digital native decades before the term was coined, but also had a strong affinity with the life science industry since early in my professional career.
I am dedicated to driving digital transformation by applying a holistic and systemic approach to change, not focused on technology alone, but rather encompassing every aspect of transformation, with people and culture being at its very center.
Having a broad international education and work experience in different corners of the world, including North America, Europe, Africa, and Oceania, I consider myself being a global citizen and feel at home wherever I find like-minded people and a liberating atmosphere of open-mindedness, curiosity, and willingness to venture off the beaten paths and advance into uncharted territory. I am relentlessly striving to pull in an ever increasing number of crusaders in my mission to create a truly digital mindset, unshakably ingrained in people’s hearts and minds.
Being a strictly value driven person, I do, and always will, put values, people and human interaction over numbers, structures and processes, and I expect the very same from a potential employer. I firmly believe in the ultimate truth contained in a quote attributed to Richard Branson, that “Success in business is all about people, people, people. Whatever industry a company is in, its employees are its biggest competitive advantage.”
I’m an avid evangelist of the Agile Manifesto and the mindset it stands for, of leveraging the benefits of intrinsic motivation (versus the vain belief in exercising control over people), of cooperative collaboration regardless of position and role (versus archaic hierarchies), of small, flexible, self-organizing teams of subject matter experts (versus cumbersome line organization behemoths), and of the steadfast conviction (paraphrasing Victor Hugo) that...
...nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come.
